Proto-Slavic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Balto-Slavic *śeśtas, ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *sweḱsth₂o- or *suḱsth₂o-. Cognate with Lithuanian šẽštas (sixth) Latvian sȩstais (sixth), Old Prussian wuschts, usts, uschts (sixth), Sanskrit षष्ठ (ṣaṣṭha, sixth). Per Derksen, the oldest Balto-Slavic form may have been *uśtas, on the strength of the Old Prussian evidence, with *śeśtas a later development influenced by *śeś (six).
